Outline

The Office of the Pro-Vice Chancellor (International) is providing $1,000 travel scholarships to selected UNSW students wishing to undertake global mobility programs.

The purpose of this scholarship is to encourage UNSW students to participate in global mobility programs that fall outside the formal exchange program. These programs include intensive courses, summer/winter exchange courses, practicums (research placements), unpaid internships and conferences. All current UNSW students participating in overseas Winter programs (commencing May - October) or Summer programs (commencing November - February) are eligible to apply.

There will be two rounds of applications in 2019:

Round 1 Deadline: Sunday 12 May - for Winter programs (commencing May - October)

Round 2 Deadline: Sunday 6 October - for Summer programs (commencing November - February)
